Do you remember when there used to be just TWO internet browsers in the world (three if you even knew what browser Apple computers used...)?
Microsoft's Internet Explorer dominated the marketplace and little Netscape (bought by AOL and recently shut down on March 1st, 2008) was always struggling to get marketshare. Today we have MANY browser options to choose from and if you have never tried any of the others you really should take them for a spin as they are all quite distinct and may offer you just what you hoped for in a browser.
I won't elaborate on the features of each browser as I am more curious what people here at AR are using and why.

Google Chrome is the latest browser to hit the internet world and it already is making a huge splash. It is FAST, very sleek and takes a minimalist approach with none of the gazzilion buttons and search boxes that can end up on IE.
Firefox is the open source choice for many as it offers a huge amount of customized plug-in options for nearly anyone. I personally use this one for all my real estate related online work. The plug in's are great and offer loads of time saving applications.
Safari once exclusively for Mac's it is now available for Winows/PC users as well.This is my favorite browser for home use as it is very fast and intuitive to use.
Flock is the new rage for the social media world and I am curious if ActiveRainer's are playing with this browser due to it's heavy integration with all the social media sites. I find it a bit awkward and confusing but must admit I have only done a cursory review of it.
Opera has been around for awhile but seems to be getting more popular these days. They have a mobile phone version and also offer a social media tie-in relationship (Blogging via SMS even)
SeaMonkey was created by the same people that created FireFox (Mozilla open source) and apparently is trying to be the Swiss Army Knife of all browsers. They even include an HTML editor and IRC chat tools. Probably more of a true Geek-Browser but there is power under that hood.
There are more below but they are the lesser known "fringe" browsers...I have tried the above but can't say much about these below others...
KidRocket- This one is cool as it was designed JUST for kids...done very well.
What Browser do YOU use?
